2:00 am
>> we are going to start with you with highlights from the big event. >> ainsley and heather, good morning to you. i am not going to pick a winner or loser because people get on your twitter account if you do that. you have to give kudos to carly fiorina. she did herself a world of good. she probably had the most point nent moment last night. she owned the place when she made this statement about planned parenthood. listen? >> i dare hillary clinton barack obama to watch these tapes, watch a fully formed fetus on the table. this is about the character of our nation and if we will not stand up and force president obama to veto this bill, shame on us. >> the crowd absolutely ate that one up. adds expected carly fiorina got into it with donald trump big
2:01 am
time. you remember the comment who would vote for a face like that about a week ago then there was a sharp back and forth prompting chris christie admonish both of them. listen to this. >> there are a lot of us americans who believe we are going to have trouble some day paying back the interest on our debt because politicians have run up mountains of debt using other people's money. that is in fact precisely the way you ran your casinos. >> atlantic city is a disaster and i did great in atlantic city. i knew when this get out. my timing was great. i got a lot of credit about it. >> we don't want to hear about your careers volleying back and forth. you are both successful people. congratulations. you know who is not successful? the middle class in this country who is getting plowed over. >> that was something middle class voters probably would eat up. not sure how well that is going to play for christie. because people don't care about the records of donald trump and
2:02 am
carly fiorina. christie admonished fiorina to not interrupt him. may seem a bill bully. jeb bush spent as much time as he could talking about his record as florida governor trying to talk about him being a real conservative. donald trump jabs his brother. >> your brother's administration gave us barack obama because it was such a disaster the last three months that abraham lincoln couldn't have been elected. >> as relates to my brother there's one thing i know for sure. he kept us safe. i don't know if you remember. >> jeb bush got big points for that. that was a big moment for him. ben carson didn't have breakout moments like the fox news debate a month ago. he epitomized political cool.
2:03 am
he avoided every opportunity to attack donald trump. e even at one point got a high five from trump. >> i suggested to president bush that he not go to war. i just want that on the record. >> you know, one thing we should mention as well before we leave you here in seem me valley is marco rubio he put in a solid performance last night. because in virtue of his positions on committees that he has a strong command of foreign policy. he showed that last night. give p enthe slings and arrows and attacks he has taken over immigration he has found a way to articulate immigration policy in a way voters can relate to. we will see where rubio goes with this. the biggest bumps will be for donald trump and carly fiorina.
2:04 am
she needed to hit a home run. she hit it out of the park last night. >> a lot of folks agree with you on that. we will talk a little bit more about that. john roberts live for us. carly fiorina dominating the debate stage. the planned parenthood response the most talked about moment but not the only time she shined. >> on day one i will make two phone calls the first to bibi netanyahu to say we will stand with the state of israel the second to tell him unless and until he opens every military and every nuclear facility to real any time anywhere inspections with our people not his we will make it as difficult as possible to move it around the global financial system. mrs. clinton i have traveled hundreds of thousands of miles around the globe. i know it is an activity it is not an accomplishment. mrs. clinton if you want to stuff a democrat ask them to name an accomplishment of
2:05 am
hillary clinton. >> how do our fox news analysts think that fiorina did. charles krauthammer and brit hume agree that she won the debate but with one caveat. >> countered insults with trump in a way that was short and surprising and electric. she had her little lip when she took on interestingly and probably iran and planned parenthood. >> she seemed a bit stern and cross at times. she was extraordinary authoritative and the command of the national international issues and facts and details of our military quite impressive. >> political analysts seem to agree carly fiorina won the debate last night. who won the most important issues. joining us to weigh in on this
2:06 am
is our political panel director of the accountability and william f. buckley fellow of the national review. >> we stayed up late to watch the debate. who is the winner off tn the economy? that's such an important issue in the polls right now. >> without a doubt carly fiorina. >> she came knowing her stats, her facts. she understands how government works, she understands where spending is, she has a plan. she got us the details. not one person on stage could debate her on the economy. >> she has a lot of experience running companies. >> i think carly did a good job but i am going to say bush because the expectations were high here. very high for him. he had a lot to lose. i think he performed well on this issue. his closing statement was very strong. he sounded executive. >> loser when it comes to the economy. >> you choose carson. >> without a doubt. he didn't come prepared. he didn't bring his a game. he had the most to lose in this
2:07 am
debate because he was surging in the polls. this was an opportunity to speak to the general audience to move to a moderate demographic at east in the room in california. he didn't have facts or figures. he wasn't that exciting either. >> who did you choose again. you are crabbing trump. >> he was almost completely absent from policy debates. if the angle is we need to elect a businessman that businessman should be able to tell us why as a ceo we will be able to lift the economy. i think carly and others had a devastating attack on fiscal mismanagement of his casinos. >> immigration. who do you think the winner is? >> rubio. i will qualify this. i think there's a lot of skepticism about gang of 8 about getting effectively rolled by chuck schumer. i thought he made the right noises to combat this. he was specific on policies. he did hedge on amnesty that
2:08 am
might hurt but overall i thought it was a persongood performance. >> has personal experience. >> i have to agree he did a good job he had a personal story. so did jeb bush. jeb bush wrote an immigration plan and put it into effect. his wife is a mexican a former mexican citizen now an american citizen. she can combat the issues trump brought up. they got into a heated exchange on spanish speaking and 14th amendment. >> i thought bush was the loser on this jumping off trump's attacks on his wife he ended up sounding romantic, fluffy pie in the sky. conservatives are skeptical about jeb on immigration and i don't think the performance help pd. >> without a doubt ted cruz due in a close tie donald trump. he doesn't have details on an immigration plan. ted cruz because he is such a hard liner. i don't think he's moving
2:09 am
forward with the party. he's not inclusive. i don't think he sees a vision for the party. i don't see where his place in the party is going to be it if he continues to have the belief. >> military near and dear to our hearts. who was clear on the military? >> that was a tough one. i am going to say marco rubio. >> i think he was able to explain our foreign policy in the general people speak. i think over the heads of a lot of people you start to confuse all of the leaders as hewitt brought up in his questions with trump. he explained what was going on with syria and isis in human terms. >> who did you pick? >> i also picked rubio. i think that's about the right explanation. but i will say qualifiedly two things, one he invoked syrian rebels which is sort of like we need to arm the unicorns in the middle east. that's not a great strategy. he does have the story and
2:10 am
freedom and liberty, warm, fuzzy rhetoric i think connects. >> hold up your losers. losers for military who did you pick? >> you picked paul? >> i actually picked jeb bush. >> thank you so much for being with us. interesting perspective from both of you. heather, over to you. thank you very much. how did the candidates rank among voters? pollster frank luntz has reaction from his focus group. >> how many of you thought chris christie did a good job. raise your hand. he seemed genuine. there was bickering going back and forth between fiorina and trump he brought it back to what it should be about. brought it back to the american people. ted cruz in tonight's debate? >> inspiring. >> straight shooter. >> solid. he's an outsider but he's proven. >> bold. >> honest. >> scott walker tonight? >> surprising. >> record. >> better than the fox debate.
2:11 am
>> polished. >> more bold. >> who came here voting for ben carson. be candid. who is walking out voting for ben carson. wasn't such a great night. tell us what's up? >> he is not a debater. that is not his style. i think he would be a very good leader, he's not a debater. >> until we see how the performances effect him in the polls there's no way to see if people perceive them the right way. here with social media reaction fox news host clayton morris. >> one thing is doing to google to see what people are typing into the google during the debate. people were asking general questions like how tall is lindsay graham and who is lindsay graham's wife. you can see it on google. you could see the spikes on immigration. they also were interested in going after hillary clinton.
2:12 am
he this wanted to know more about when lindsay graham talked about having drank with other members. they wanted to know about linted say graham drinking on google. and then during the main debate in the evening here is where everything shook out on the main debate stage. they were looking at carly fiorina. jeb bush in 3rd. number three on there. ben carson came in following that as well. the list went down the line further. let's go to twitter. this is where we saw this trend after the first debate people taking up the most twitter followers. carly fiorina on twitter receiving the most response on twitter last night. marco rubio came out like gang busters in the first debate did well last night people searching for those individuals the most and receiving the most twitter followers as a result. john skasich had a following he
2:13 am
said he needed to connect with the audience more, get people to learn more about him last night. people taking to twitter to learn more about john kasich as well. >> one of the big moments was the sound bite, the big moment from carly fee reno firing back against donald trump. that was one of the big responses last night. carly fiorina responding to donald trump's attack on her face last night. >> thanks so much. >> a lot of good one liners last night for sure. >> we will show them off to you. >> the time is 13 after the top of the hour. the top candidates touting their records and slamming each other. >> he wanted casino gambling in florida. >> i did not. >> yes, you did. you wanted it and you didn't get it. >> is it true or false. we will be fact checking these candidate's claims next. ♪

2:18 am
donald trump. he wanted casino gambling in florida. >> i did not. >> yes you did. >> totally false. >> yes you did, no i didn't. who is telling the truth here. >> well, in this case it is jeb bush wholly telling the truth here. donald trump may have a case to make he personally did not lobby jeb bush forecast nos in florida. that's a gray area but he did hire a lobbyist to lobby jeb bush and held a fundraiser for jeb bush while he was running for governor to try to win him over for this issue. donated a bunch of money to the florida republican party. >> eventually the casinos did not make it in florida. >> chris christie on planned parenthood in new jersey. listen to this one. >> i vetoed planned parenthood funding eight times in new jersey since the day i walked in as governor planned parenthood has not been funded in new
2:19 am
jersey. true or false? >> this one is true. chris christie has many times over the course of being governor of new jersey vetoed funding for planned parenthood. here's the hold up. he hasn't always done it for the sort of moral reasons he would have you believe now. it was a matter of making the budget balance. >> we don't really know what his moral reason were or not. finally vaccinations. it was kind of a debate. it went back and forth. here's what donald trump had to say. >> i am in favor of vaccines do them over a longer period of time. same amount but in little sections. >> doctor carson? i think you are going to see a big impact on autism. >> donald trump ben carson involved in this. is he right? is trump correct? >> no. doctor carson followed up after
2:20 am
donald trump said that and said he is completely wrong on this. he is referring to one old study that was an out liar there's been no links between autism and vaccines. >> he did say he agreed perhaps the vaccinations should be spread out a little bit further over time. thank you so much. we enjoyed it. >> thanks. >> thank you. it is now 20 minutes after the top of the hour. making the case for commander-in-chief. >> we need the strongest military p on the face of the planet. >> i will only send you into harm's way when our national security is at risk. >> coming up next a retired general with the one candidate who he says would be the best to lead our military.

2:25 am
who would be the best commander-in-chief? >> let me start off saying in my 34 years on duty i have never seen a more complex security matter. it was a very lengthy debate. if i had a top three i would have picked carly fiorina governor bush and marco rubio. >> why is that? >> first off i thought carly fee reno was very forceful and informed, very engaged. she thinks the international security environment. she talked about veterans but she also talked about specifically what is needed to regain military strength i think has wayned some what. >> why bush? >> bush had a good showing also. i appreciated the fact that he was forthcoming in defending his brother's record that he kept us safe. i served under president bush and so forth. the other term he used was peace through strength. which is very reaganesque but it
2:26 am
is absolutely true as we move forward in this dynamic and unsettled international environment we have as well. >> which candidate would be best for veterans? you mentioned carly talked about veterans of all of the candidates which one do you think would be best suited? >> carly had really good words about that. we have to play close attention to veterans. this is a national security issue. we have a tendency to focus on issues at tret tran's hospitals and so forth. as the army down size we have more veterans entering into the community in the private sector. it is important we address their issues particularly based on the last 14 years of war, impact on their families. i think that's an important national security issue. >> thank you for being with us. >> nice to see you. heather, over to you. >> thank you. the time is now almost half past the top of the hour. who will be next to drop out of the race and who could emerge as
2:27 am

"depreciation" they claim. "how can my car depreciate before it's first oil change?" you ask. maybe the better question is, why do you have that insurance company? with liberty mutual new car replacement, we'll replace the full value of your car. see car insurance in a whole new light. liberty mutual insurance.

trouble. i think long-term if trump continues to be subjected to this, i think he could wind up looking for possibly leading the republican party for what at least to him is a more attractive and younger party. >> the dem kratz? >> if you want him, please take him. >> vp candidates. any one that maybe struck you? >> i think marco rubio positioned himself very well. i also think carly fiorina if she doesn't have the long sterm staying power. >> i think at least a cabinet position for sure. vp, who do you think? >> i am looking to ben carson. i thought he was so thoughtful and so measured. the guy is obviously smart. i am thinking back to the first debate most important thing is the president has a brain. i have got one of those. he certainly does. he also was really light on respects and choose that he --

2:45 am
>> i knew when to get out my timing was great and i got a lot of credit for it. >> other candidates adding it is not just that simple as declaring bankrupt or in washington. it could be viewed as business failures for mr. trump. we will see if it effects him in the polls. opponents think it is a weakness for him. another is stag innocent wage growth. that's when another politician doctor ben carson took his moment in the spotlight. >> we have to have two-minute mum wages a starter and a sustaining. how are young people ever going to get a job if you have such a high minimum wage that it makes it impractical to hire them. ? >> that idea resinating with businesses this morning. doctor kaer son attacking the obama administration their attacks on the wealthy saying to go after billionaires basically

2:47 am
secretary's track record. >> mrs. clinton is going to have to defend her track record of lying about benghazi, of lying about the e-mails and servers. >> the question is who is going to prosecute hillary clinton. obama has no interest. justice department has no interest. it is time to put a former federal prosecutor on the same stage as hillary cloin ton. >> i can't wait to stand on the debate stage against hillary clinton and make it clear if you vote for hillary clinton you are voting for the ayatollah khomeini. he was tweeting about the debate he didn't have anything nice to say about the republican candidates. the prime time stage not just an 11-way contest. back to you in new york. >> peter doocy live in new york. thanks, better. >> the time is about 15 minutes after the top of the hour. the library bearing ronald

2:52 am
did the candidates do or say differently last night in the debate that worked really well? >> i think we saw a lot of the same things from the previous debate. one thing where i noticed a little bit of a shift was a spiciness that we saw in the first debate. we saw that with a lot of these exchanges, particularly with donald trump and carly fiorina over comments about her appearance. we also saw a feisty exchange between donald trump and jeb bush about his business dealings in florida. and we also saw the feisty exchange between donald trump and rand paul as i think we saw in some of these candidates take the gloves off more than we saw in the previous debate. >> rand paul after the very start of the debate everybody going, whoa, we know what's going to happen here. it sort of set the tone. >> it definitely did, without a doubt. so the candidates also evoked reagan. who did it best? listen to this. >> i'm honored to be here at the reagan library, at a place that honors the legacy of a man who
2:53 am
